6th Workshop on System Analysis and Modelling (SAM 2010)

4th-5th October 2010, Oslo, Norway.

Co-located with MODELS 2010.

The workshop provides an open arena for participants from academia and industry to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, experiences and concerns in modelling, specification, and analysis of distributed, communication and real-time systems. In particular, it addresses SDL, MSC, and related languages such as UML, ASN.1, TTCN, and URN.

The SAM workshop originates from the use of languages and techniques for telecommunications applications, whereas MODELS has a background in the application of UML. However, UML is also used for telecommunications, and the languages standardized by ITU-T (ASN.1, SDL, TTCN, URN) are also used for other applications. The 2010 MODELS conference week is a unique opportunity to attend both of these events with overlapping domains of interest.


The sixth edition of the workshop will cover the following non-exclusive list of topics:

Important: Electronic submission in pdf-format, using EDAS, is mandatory. Papers that have already been published or that are under review at another event are ineligible for submission to SAM 2010. All submissions must be in English. The SAM Programme Committee will evaluate the technical contribution of each submission as well as its accessibility to the SAM audience. Papers will be judged on significance, originality, substance, correctness, and clarity. Camera-ready versions of accepted papers have to adhere to the LNCS format.

Accepted papers must be presented at the workshop by one of the authors.

As with previous SAM workshops, SAM2010 papers will be published as post-event proceedings in the LNCS series by Springer after an additional review.
